The MultiVersus Open Beta is Here, and Co-op is Now Working Smoothly

MultiVersus is a highly anticipated free-to-play Super Smash Bros.-style fighting game from Warner Bros. After a closed beta period followed by an early access period for premium bundle owners, the open beta has arrived.

Wacky Co-op Racing Game 'Fling to the Finish' Gets a Big Update on Steam

Daedalic Entertainment and developer Splitside Games call Fling to the Finish a racing game.

This Steam Early Access game just got a new race type to enjoy as well as a progression system that ties everything together. Oh, and it's on sale through July 28!

MultiVersus Now Available in Early Access, Goes Free to Play on July 26

There once was a movie called Space Jam: A New Legacy that combined numerous Warner Bros. characters and properties. It's a very bad movie that should be avoided at all costs! However, the idea of mixing WB properties together clearly has some appeal, hence the new Smash Bros.-style fighting game, MultiVersus. Players who buy any premium edition of MultiVersus can play it right now, but the game will officially launch in free to play form on July 26.

The retro beat 'em up is even better with a friend.

Double Dragon IV Got Online Co-op Somewhere Along the Way

It's not often that a game receives online multiplayer years after release, but it does happen. Case in point: Double Dragon IV from Arc System Works. The retro-style beat 'em up came to all major platforms, one system at a time, but initially without an online mode. A few years later, though, the game was updated to add 2-player online co-op! That's quite an addition for a small-scale $7 game, so we had to try it out and share our impressions.
